We were to the winery for a wedding reception recently. although the trees were not lush, from the looks of the grounds, this looks like a nice place to visit in Summer. The reception area upstairs was nice. The one draw back was there was not a bar upstairs. Every time you wanted a drink, you had to go to... More

Easy drive just outside Des Moines. Very pretty landscape and clean facilities. The wine is scrumptious. Was a great ladies day!

We stop here 1-2 times per year, for wine and enjoyment. We sampled a few wines and several selections were made and purchased. Enjoyed the visit with the lady at the sampling. When we got to our vehicle, Ron drove up and visited for awhile. He loves to see MN people drive for 3 hr to buy his wine. One... More

We just wrapped up our 3rd year of helping to bring in the harvest at Summerset Winery! This is a great winery and we love helping them bring in the crop to make their tasty wines. From watching the sun rise over the vineyard to making new friends under the vines, to jumping in the tanks to stomp, it's fun... More

This was my first visit to the winery and I have to say, it was beautiful and I think I would have enjoyed it much more for the wine tasting, not the “grape stomp”. I have to put it in quotations because the stomping was a total on 3% of the day. The Grape stomp event was a TOTAL WASTE... More

Asha Mada, I am sorry to hear your experience at our fall harvest was disappointing. I wish there was something we could have done for you while you were still here in an attempt to make things more pleasurable. We produce 20 different wines and have many dry wines to choose from as well as the sweet. I'm sure we... More

I am a frequent summer visitor to Summerset Winery. Their "Sunday afternoons" top the charts on things to do! You can't beat the price to spend relaxing afternoon under a shade tree listening to fabulous tunes and visiting with friends. I also enjoy seeing young families there, lying on their blankets with the kids playing. Also a great time for... More

For $5.00 per person will get you in for a relaxing afternoon!!! Time to then taste the wine and pick your bottle to enjoy while listening to a great band. My favorite is white. Mead or Kiss Me! Get your bucket with ice. You can also choose some cheese, cracker or summer sausage. They also have cutting boards with knife.... More
